'Defamation' Resolution Concerning to Christians

Christian groups are speaking out against a proposed U.N. resolution that they say can be used against Christians.

The non-binding resolution on “Combating the Defamation of Religion” is intended to curtail speech that offends religion – particularly Islam. The resolution is backed by Muslim nations and condemns “negative stereotyping of religions.”

The Christian ministry Open Doors says many believers are already living under severe laws that threaten their lives.

“Many Christians living in these countries are already severely impacted by restrictive laws - especially those living under strict Shariah law,” Open Doors U.S.A President Carl Moeller told The Christian Post.

“From the right to worship freely to the ability to share the Gospel, the Defamation of Religions resolution threatens to justify local laws that already marginalize Christians.”
